DRESS LIKE YOUR DAD DAY
Sunday, June 18th
June 18th is Father's Day, so this year, just like we celebrated Mother's Day with a "Dapper Day", we are going to celebrate Father's Day with a "Dress Like Your Dad Day". Which means, you can wear the same outfit, shirt or color as your dad, or wear what your dad wants you to wear or dress like your dad does for church or work. Or maybe you wear one of dad's ties or hats. It really means to wear whatever best represents your father to worship on June 18th. Just like on Mother's Day there will be FREE FUN photos for all households and free candy for all men! Come join in the fun, celebrate dad and worship our Heavenly Father!
